One of the biggest problems that you’ll encounter if your air conditioner is not well-maintained is dirty coils. If your air conditioner’s coils are not thoroughly cleaned every year, your home will likely be uncomfortable and your energy bills can go through the roof! Today we’re going to help you avoid this problem by talking about why dirty coils are problematic and how you can benefit from having your air conditioner’s coils cleaned by Hydes!

What are your air conditioner’s coils?

Your air conditioner has two sets of coils: evaporator coils and condenser coils. The evaporator coils are located in the indoor portion of your air conditioner, and they are responsible for absorbing heat from your home’s air and transferring it to the refrigerant that carries it out of your home.

The condenser coils are located in the outdoor portion of your air conditioner, and they are responsible for transferring heat from the refrigerant to the air outside (essentially “dumping” the heat from your home to the outdoors).

Why is it important to clean your air conditioner’s coils?

Over time, both you condenser coils and your evaporator coils suffer from dirt buildup. This can have big impacts on the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner.

As dirt build’s up on your air conditioner’s coils, it adds a layer on top of the coils that makes it harder to transfer and absorb heat. As a result, your air conditioner will have a harder time moving heat out of your home and your system will have to run much more often and use a lot more energy to keep your home cool.
